In fairness I have to say that what seems to be some sort of high-concept attempt to show man's place in the universe turns out instead to be a second rate collection of old SF pulp illustrations, NASA publicity shots, badly implemented two-page spreads and Star Trek. Lots of Star Trek. (Starbrite) "They've landed! They've landed!" With the initial panic over, the burning question is, "Where did They come from?" The authors of Alien Creatures now take you on an incredible...

When director Tim Burton turned his eye to the red planet, no one suspected. When he began to transport the gory, cult classic Mars Attacks from trading cards to silver screen, no one knew. But Mars Attacks! has proved to be one of Burton's most outrageous productions. He wasn't alone. His co-conspirators included illustrators, costumers, computer artists, model builders, a stellar cast of actors, and many other extraordinarily talented people. MARS ATTACKS! The Art of the Movie reveals the...

Today, book and CD covers seem slapped together at the last moment. Take a picture of the latest music 'star' and that's good enough. DTP a collage and call it cutting edge. It wasn't always like that.

Whether it came from outer space, beneath the sea, or across the eons from prehistoric time, you can be sure of one thing: it came from the vivid imagination and technical expertise of a special effects genius.

Now from the archives of cinematic history comes the story of their work and others' in a fascinating, revealing look at how 150 of the most fantastic fantasy films were made. • The silent era and the origin of special...

It was a laugh of menace, of bottomless evil, and it echoes across the shadowy corridors of the years like a childhood phantom. My earliest meeting with The Shadow was via a radio loudspeaker—quite a different medium from the originating pulps, but equally colorful. The litany is of course now legendary: "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows. . . ." The maxim that the weed of crime bears bitter fruit, intoned at the start of every program, was biblical in...

A fake book is a collection of musical lead sheets intended to help a performer quickly learn new songs. Each song in a fake book contains the melody line, basic chords, and lyrics - the minimal information needed by a musician to make an impromptu arrangement of a song, or "fake it." The fake book is a central part of the culture of playing music in public, particularly in jazz, where improvisation is particularly valued. Fake books are not intended for novices: the reader must...
